Barrel Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
The nose on this single barrel is big and rich with warm baking spice, buttery toffee, and crème caramel. Damp oak notes, like wet sawdust, nicely complement the sweeter elements while a bit of flamed orange peel and some cigar box add to the complex and well-balanced aroma. The initial mouthfeel is medium-bodied and full-flavored with a laundry list of classic bourbon notes: creamy caramels, butterscotch candies, cinnamon sugar, clove, nutmeg, and toasted oak.

About the brand
Old Carter Whiskey Co is the passion project by husband and wife team Mark & Sherri Carter. They began their beverage endeavors in the wine business. They produce fine wines in Napa Valley with their Carter Cellars Cabernets garnering nine perfect 100 point scores by critics. The whiskey business found them several years ago when they partnered with a Kentucky friend to resurrect a long dormant bourbon brand. That brand sold in 2017, but by then the Carters were hooked on the process of making and blending whiskies, as well as the state of Kentucky and so they started Old Carter Whiskey Co to carry on their love affair with whiskey making. They now produce Straight Ryes, Bourbons and an American Whiskey in various locations throughout Kentucky with showrooms in both Lexington and Louisville (Louisville under construction, coming soon!). Mark and Sherri handle all aspects of the business themselves from creating new blends and selecting single barrels, to designing and handwriting each individual label per bottling. It is a very hands-on approach and has allowed them to continue to create together. It is a true labor of love at Old Carter. Being able to share their passion with whiskey lovers everywhere completes the picture for the Carters.

With the crazy whiskey blast comes numerous awesome all be it more youthful whiskey choices. This one additionally gets a sticker price approaching 200 bucks. Tragically my interest out paced my disturbance with this consistently developing expensive NAS whiskey advertise. Shading and body are essentially whiskey container quality. It's arriving in somewhat lighter than state a 60 dollar ECBP so I'm speculating we're somewhat under 12 years likely in the 7-9 however I have not investigated it. The nose is very perspiration just about a banana bread like note almost no wood and the wood is this perspiration decent agreeable note. I'm not getting any oak harshness nor am I getting those dull calfskins or those old cherry notes. I do anyway get some increasingly new cherry like notes in here. Much the same as the nose this whiskey is all pleasantness with only a couple of traces of oak severe to shield it from being excessively sweat. Carmel vanilla bit of varnish (there's some age here). There's a sugar coated organic product note also something between a peach and a cherry however surely not either. I'm additionally getting maybe a bit of custard substantial in some bready notes. Finish is medium it's decent. It's not incredible. Alright so I paid lets state 175 I limb it some time back. Is it justified despite all the trouble in case you're willing to spend that on a whiskey? That is a test for me. This isn't for those of us who love overwhelming oak. This isn't my preferred flavor profile where it gives me those increasingly mind boggling dull chocolates and fruits. It anyway is a widely appealing rich perspiration flavor absent a lot unpleasant and actually no off putting notes. This is a whiskey you can't detest. I to some degree wish I'd purchased a subsequent jug however I'm truly ready to spend on whisky I appreciate. I can't suggest however it's over valued and it won't goodness. There are a lot of containers in the 50-60 territory that are going to contrast with this. I'd for instance put a great deal of 1792 containers close to this and there's a ton in like manner between the two.

Cluster 3: 2019 Purportedly a mix of 12 to 15-year-old whiskey from Tennessee. Cant discover the mashbill yet past discharges have had 8% grain and 8% rye with the rest being corn. Nose: dusty dim natural products potentially somewhat cherry oak vanilla traces of cinnamon and apple Sense of taste: rich and sleek with a lot of rye flavor trace of progressively dim organic products more oak Finish: medium to long more rye zest Shockingly fiery yet as this is the first spill out of the container I will return to in a long time.

Tasting Notes
Nose
The nose on this rye is wonderful with new aromas emerging the longer it sits in the glass. At first, you are hit with aromas of rye spice, raw bread dough, and black pepper. As it sits for a few minutes, a touch of barrel char and smoke comes through along with a lightly floral-grassy scent and some dried apricot.
Taste
This rye delivers a really enjoyable drinking experience. The mouthfeel is thick and oily, fully coating the entire mouth. Layers of flavor start on the front of the palate with black pepper followed by toasted pecans on the mid-palate with thick drippy caramel on the sides of the tongue. As you continue to sip, mint and orange citrus flavors develop on the mid-palate. The higher proof delivers a perfect amount of tingling heat throughout each sip.
Finish
It has a medium-length finish that is fairly dry and tannic. The black pepper turns into cinnamon with a good amount of citrus, mint, and a healthy dose of oak rounding out the finish.
